Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2014

It’s a day to laugh to cry, to hold to love.  A day to like, a day to share, a day to engorge yourself on chocolates.  It is a day that many see as not a real holiday, because it’s yet another excuse for America to say, “Hey, you, buy something!”  And you aren’t wrong to think that, I think it most of the time as well, but I will say that if you are one of the lucky ones who don’t coin Valentine’s as “singles awareness day, and are in a relationship, silly, casual, fun, serious, or a married for years sort of arrangement, you should do something with your person today, because after all, if you already love them or like them a lot, you’d want to go out and do something with them, so today is a perfect excuse to spend time together, real holiday or not!  Every kiss does not begin with Kay, because Kay is not a letter, K is.  And buying shit from Jared?  Who cares?  I know he lost a lot of weight on the Subway diet(yes I know it’s a different Jared), but why must we buy expensive crap from him to have a good day?  We don’t. Don’t give in to the lie, unless you really have the money to spare. ” Money can’t buy me love,” remember?

Playlist time: Night Work

February 3, 2014

I don’t have any creative title for this one, but I am very proud of what I came up with in an extremely rushed and slapdash manner.  It’s delightfully queer, with a plethora of robotic noises, Album of The Year winners (Daft Punk), my favorite Broadway star of all time,  the lady that makes us go gaga, Glamtastic fun, Industrial, grungey and very dancy, delightfully American and International in equal portions.  Enjoy!

Two Spring Playlists both alike in Dignity

April 9, 2013

Spring Mix

1. In One Ear- Cage The Elephant

2. On Top of The World- Imagine Dragons

3. Shut Your Mouth- Garbage

17. Alive With The Glory of Love- Say Anything

18. Tonight, Tonight- The Smashing Pumpkins

 

This first playlist reflects on my current no holds barred, no quarter, kicking the door in mentality. Taking a stand against tyrants and any others who may try and tear us down.  This attitude reflects the them of new beginnings for this time of year, the renewal of the green world, and a bigger passion for life and the world at large.  Mixed in there are some songs that are just a lot of fun to listen to or rock out to.  You will also notice the major permeation of 90’s music, which never seems to lose its relevancy.  A product of my times truly am I.

 

Second Playlist- Acrobat

1. The Loner- Neil Young

2. Under The Influence- Matthew Good Band

3.Panic Switch- Silversun Pickups

4. Love Is Blindness- U2

5. She’s Long Gone- The Black Keys

10. Where Did You Sleep Last Night- Nirvana

11. Bigger Than Love- Ben Gibbard

12. Blowout- Radiohead

13. Dream On- Depeche Mode

14. Blue- R.E.M.

The second mix just came at me suddenly this morning, and the results were too good not to share.  More of the same swagger, the same attitude, the same diversity, renewal, the good fight, moving on.  All of these things and more.  Tell me which you like more. 🙂

My bizarre car music for the week.

April 6, 2012

Bizarre seeming mixture anyway, but all awesome music I promise.  Or maybe not. You decide.

David Bowie- The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars     Not only is this album amazing, but this year it turns 40, and it has aged just as well as the man himself.  Who else can write such amazing songs about nothing in particular, and have equally emotional serious tracks as well? No one I say.

Britney Spears- Femme Fatale  If nothing else this is truly one of the best guilty pleasure albums in recent time.  And I like it well enough to own it so I don’t know how guilty that makes me.  I also love the looks I get when Colin and I drive through Bratt blasting it nearly as loud as we can.

The Black Keys- Brothers  It’s no wonder this album won a grammy last year, but just can’t believe how long it took these guys to become popular in the mainstream.  And I can’t stop listening to this album.  El Camino may be an amazing album, but this one which precedes it is absolutely Amazing!

The Hunger Games Soundtrack      I can’t express how great this is.  Thank you to this album for allowing me to finally appreciate Taylor Swift, and discover how wonderful The Civil Wars are, and need it be said how awesome this is? New songs by Decemberists, Arcade Fire, Low Anthem, Glen Hansard and Birdy, among others, and Adam Levine’s first folky song.

The All-American Rejects- Kids in the Street    Brand new album from the pop punkers, still going strong after over ten years, while most of the bands in this genre have a turnover of a few years.  Going to see them at the end of the month, so of course it’s in heavy rotation.

The Arcade Fire- The Suburbs   I will always remember the time this won Album of the Year at last year’s Grammys much to the awe of everyone watching, fans and naysayers alike.  Hail the Indie future!
